  • Don Reed Bio Don Reed (NBC's "The RERUN Show/Sony's CHV") is a multi-talented stand-up comedian who has been described as a comedic molotov-cocktail of characters, sound fx, impersonations and improvisation! His performance on an HBO Special of up and coming comedians years ago caught the attention of Bill Cosby, among others, and led to the creation of a guest starring role for him on "The Cosby Show." Cosby gave Don some invaluable advice that spurred him to dive into the NACA college circuit, appearing at over 300 colleges. Thereafter, Don began doing audience warm-up for several sitcoms, which led to writing and consulting on several of those shows. Reed spent the next several years behind the camera successfully writing, producing and doing voice-over work (credits include "Spiderman", "The Flintstones", "Johnny Quest" etc.) He wrote and directed several short films for HBO, once casting himself, inadvertantly sparking the revival of his on camera and performing career. His HBO shorts garnered the attention of UPN who cast him as a series regular and writer on the sketch comedy show "Off Limits." His performances on that show caught the eyes of "MAD TV" executives who were producing NBC's "The RERUN Show" where he was cast as a series regular --giving him the freedom to jump back into the arms of his first love – stand-up comedy. (credits include – Comedy Central, Showtime Aspen Comedy Festival, Co-Executive Producer of "Celebrity Home Videos", Copy Consultant on X-Box's "Halo 2" and EA's "Lord of the Rings" ad launches and more…! )moreless
